I never really got to celebrate my 21st birthday, so for the last couple years I’ve been telling my friends that I was going to re-celebrate my 21st when I turned 31. Only a 10 year difference…no biggee, right?
However, as the celebration date approached, I started feeling more old, tired, and beat down from work (this has been a particularly tough year of work for me). Suddenly, the idea of a casual pot luck or simple house party sounded better. Luckily for me, I had already told my 21st birthday celebration idea to my friend Megan who ended up planning quite the bar crawl for me.
With a specially developed and printed agenda (all the birthday party guests got a copy), plus a 21st-birthday-style tiara (from Megan), I rallied for what was to be a spectacular night on the town.
We ended up doing a casual pizza dinner at the same place we went last year – Luisa’s pizza. Dinner was followed by birthday drinks (21st-birthday-style) and plenty of dancing.
Here are some photos from the night (because sometimes pictures are so much better than words):
(complimentary birthday tiramisu – thanks Luisa’s!)
Since I was out with a bunch of my Zumba peeps, we requested a couple of our fave pop-style songs. The DJ played them and even played some others we hadn’t thought about:
- Drop It Low
- Tik Tok
- How Low
- On the Floor
- Hey Baby
We strayed a little bit from the agenda due to patio closures, etc. (and we didn’t make it to Taco Bell), but it didn’t matter…I had SO MUCH FUN! 🙂
Sending a big thank you to Megan and Erica for planning such a fun birthday bar crawl!
